Make your existing fibre channel legacy SAN storage infrastructure faster than flash with the Violin Maestro 2510. Powered by the Maestro software suite and hardware optimized, the Violin Maestro 2510 delivers enterprise data management services to transform your performance-challenged, fibre channel SAN-based IT environment into a high performing all-flash data center with no disruption to your applications.
Patented hardware-accelerated algorithms built into the Violin Maestro 2510, combined with the expansive functionality of the Violin Maestro data services software suite, enable a risk-free and disruption-free transformation to a highly efficient, flash-based data center.
Realtime Flash Tiering
Transparently accelerate your applications, while still running on legacy fibre channel SAN storage, with the highly scalable flash tier built into the Violin Maestro 2510. Patented Maestro caching technology, performance optimized in hardware on dedicated data services silicon, quickly learns application I/O patterns and generates predictive heuristics. With more than 90% of the I/O serviced from the flash tier, the Maestro 2510 provides up to 10x acceleration for read-intensive applications using existing legacy SAN storage.
High Speed Data Protection
Get the dual benefit of immediate acceleration and disaster protection for your business-critical data with flash speed asynchronous data mirroring. The Violin Maestro 2510 provides the flexibility to mirror between different storage arrays and to extend over any distance. The Maestro software suite provides full control over your Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO).
Migration Without Downtime
Migrate your data faster than flash from legacy disk-based fibre channel SANs to the Violin All-Flash 6000 Array Family – completely in the background – with no disruption to your applications. Hardware-based performance optimization and predictive I/O analytics built into the Violin Maestro 2510 enable the Maestro 2510 to migrate TBs of data while simultaneously accelerating the applications. With broad support for leading legacy fibre channel SAN storage arrays, the Violin Maestro 2510 presents a highly flexible and cost-effective data migration strategy.
Adding the Violin Maestro 2510 to your existing fibre channel SAN storage fabric requires no changes in your server or storage configuration. The Maestro 2510 is deployed as a transparent, SAN-attached fibre channel (FC) proxy between the servers and storage. The application thinks it is still accessing the SAN storage, while the 2510 Memory Appliance provides accelerated data services transparently – enabling you to get the speed of flash without disruption.
